“They are a really good side. They are one of the best teams in the league and a completely different test – they are big, physical and more direct than perhaps what we’ve come up against," he told the South London Press.

“They cause you a lot of problems with their physicality, energy and honesty. I really like them as a team.

"I’m excited because it’s a good test for us – I see all those things from my team in the last couple of games. It’s a good one for us to test ourselves against a team of similar traits.

“They’ve got good players, a good manager and a good coach [Richie Barker] who I know well.”
